Red River Softball Season Kick-Off

By Hayley Loe

The Red River High School Softball team kicks off their season strong with 1 win and 1 loss under their belts.

In their first game against Ringgold the girls started out their season with a win, 21-2.  Ringgold the girls came out and played a pretty clean game. Elizabeth Hughes stayed hot at the plate with 2 home runs and 5 RBI’s and Bryn Danzy pitched a good game with 7 strikeouts and no walks for her 2nd win of the season.

Their second game against Mansfield ended in a loss 18-19, with the girls being two runs shy of their second win. In the Mansfield game the team played as a whole unit. Coach Zachery Thrasher had this to say about the Mansfield game, “We had too many mistakes on defense and it ended up costing us in the end. We are going to clean that up and play a more complete game against Mansfield, Monday when they come to Red River.”

Next week scheduled games are:

Monday- home Mansfield 

Tuesday- home Bossier 

Thursday- home Northwood

Friday and Saturday is a Tournament at Saline high school

Red River High posted, “Congratulations to Elizabeth Hughes, 3 home runs in 2 games.  She hit 1 Thursday night in Mansfield and 2 Fri night in Ringgold.  Great job E.”

Softball girls still hitting bombs every day. Shakiyah Davis is the first player to hit it out of our new Lady Bulldog Complex. Also Kaitlyn Antilley hit her one to the fence and scored an in the park HR beating the play at the plate.
